introduced today by long-time champion congresswoman rosa delauro. i'm proud to join her and my colleagues in supporting this critical legislation which now protects women in the work force by strengthening the equal pay act, banning retaliation against workers who discuss their wages, helping employees challenge unequal pay, and making available revenues for discriminatory practices. we all know that women make 77 cents for every dollar earned by men. the numbers' been repeated often, nuclear weapons this house which has passed paycheck fairness twice to correct this injustice. and in this tough economy now more than ever before women are the last line of economic defense for themselves and their children, working to keep a roof over their family's head and food on the table. that is why we need the paycheck fairness act without delay. it is time for the congress to act and give women a fighting chance to receive fair pay for their hard work. it's time to get this legislation to the president's desk. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlewoman yields back her time. the house will be in order

answer. listening to louise reminds me of what was happening, marcy kaptur, rosa delauro, we were working on the appropriations committee and that was the next step. and we ended up having some bipartisan support for that and that was good and there were other issues that related to testing the income of the abuser for women who needed legal assistance and when they go for legal assistance and would say, you don't qualify because your household income is including the income of the abuser. there were many hurdles and the example of when louise talks about individuals, we learn so much from those. and frankly, for some of us, it was an education that was required because none of us had that experience in our own families, neighborhoods, churches and the rest. maybe it was there, probable it was, but we just didn't know it. but who would do that, hit somebody, but they did. and this bill has to pass. so thank you all very much. >> can i say one more thing, because i want to thank you for this. as far as i'm concerned we have the health care bill because of leader pelosi and up until
